Acts of the Holy Spirit, the Unfinished Work of Jesus

From Pastor Mike's Good Morning message in the bulletin:

A Michigan factory worker, earning less than ten thousand dollars a year, was an unknowing heir to a half-million dollars. When located by an investigator some years after his benefactor’s death, the worker explained that he had neither returned home nor kept in touch with his family for 24 years. The investigator who located him estimates there is about 40 billion dollars in inheritances lying unclaimed in the US alone.

Are you as a Christian unaware of your status as "an heir of God through Christ"? Do you fail to receive the gifts our Father offers-release from the stranglehold of sin and suffocation of guilt, power in the Holy Spirit to experience the abundant life, and the joy of fellowship with the Father and his other children? Like the prodigal factory worker, do you live in ignorance of your inheritance and at a spiritual poverty level because you have moved away and fail to keep in touch with our Father or his family?

Too many believers live in spiritual autism, or spiritual poverty because they don’t claim the inheritance God has placed in their hands.

Remember that Romans 8:16-17 tells us “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs — heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” We have an inheritance in Christ, let’s claim it.
